"Is all beer from Belgium made by monks?" This was a question that came up at Monday night football. It kinda sounds silly. I mean I have been drinking the stuff for years. It couldn't be, could it? I found this web page by Rick Steves that indirectly answers the question.
If you don't want to follow the link the short answer is, no. That doesn't make Belgian beer any less intriguing though. Now I want to plan a trip to Belgium to tour the breweries, restaurants and monasteries :-)
